Excellent food, service and ambience. Been going there for well over 40 years!! Different management of course! The only down side is the gradient of the car park!!
Excellent food , service and restaurant area at a fair price. Nothing to fault. We don't go to that area often, but will certainly return when we do.
An excellent meal ; we had to wait a little as there was a shortage of staff but this was more than compensated by the quality of the food
Great location, lovely atmosphere, excellent service and most importantly delicious food. My friend and I fully intend to return, there was something for everyone on the menu.
We stopped off on a journey north - very easy to get too from the A1. We had pre-booked so our table was ready - Very friendly staff, good quality beers. Very varied menu, particularly for vegetarians. The venue was busy so we had to wait a little while for our starters but the warm home made bread and oil / basmatic dip made up for it. Both my wife and myself thoroughly enjoyed our meals and were unfortunately to full to take advantage of the sweet menu! All in all, a very enjoyable experience - would definitely recommend !
As always the Fox & Hounds - Walton for Sunday lunch is one of the best venues providing great food. the staff are always excellent and polite often with little friendly and good humoured banter. We have dined at Walton possibly 12 times or more in the past years and the standards never drop. My brother and his wife when visiting Wetherby look forward to their Sunday lunch at the F&H' s. I am not sure whether they come to see us or dine at this lovely well ran establishment. Best regards and keep up the good work.
Our table was booked for 7pm and we were delighted to find that it was still early bird prices until 7.15. The food and wine was good and the service very friendly. It was well patronized. There were 3 front-of-house waiters, which is excellent for the number of covers but service from the bar in particular still tended to be slow. Also, we would have appreciated if the hard wooden seats at our table were cushioned, as they were at other tables. These are just minor quibbles that we found on that visit, hence not a 6, but didn't spoil what was a very pleasant experience. We recommend it.
Couldn't fault the meal at all. The pub was very busy when we went creating a lovely country pub atmosphere. Amazing food and the service is very good both friendly, attentive and professional. They cannot do enough for you. You are able to request extras of vegatbles or mash for example which is also very good. The value for money is amazing I would pay a lot more for a meal of this standard. I'd say it's the best for Sunday lunch and pub food in the area consistantly.
The booking process was straightforward. On arrival, the pub/restaurant was busy but we were quickly provided with our allocated table and menus. The choice provided for Sunday Lunch was wide ranging and we found it easy to make selections. The food was excellent and served on nice hot plates, a point on which some restaurants fail badly. However one of our deserts did contain two star anise flavouring pods, which should have been removed prior to serving. The service was pleasant and friendly throughout, but the bill did contain two inaccuracies, which required correction. A nearly excellent lunchtime visit
We have visited on numerous occasions and are never disappointed. Staff very friendly and welcoming, food always great and very tasty. We had the early bird menu which is good value for money. You always get a chunk of specialty bread while you wait for your order to arrive. We had the mussels as a starter and the daily pie, which was lamb. It was all very good. We were too full for a dessert. Would always recommend a visit.
